Kim Kardashian was chastised by PETA for setting a “cruel” example for her unborn child. Although the Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s star is still months away from giving birth, she is already getting slammed for her parenting habits.
Photos of the reality show star covering her growing baby bump inside a lavish fur stole in Paris surfaced on Monday. Kim Kardashian wearing fur as she strolled about the romantic city immediately sparked controversy.
PETA representative Wendy Wenger promptly issued a “warning” to Kardashian about her fashion choices during an interview with Radar Online.
“Children of greedy, self-absorbed parents could follow their lead or they could break away and be alienated from and disgusted by them. Kim is a commodity. She is paid to wear things like fur, a particular makeup, or to shake hands with questionable people. So she is not a good example to a child or anyone else of how to show a social conscience.”
The PETA spokeswoman also noted her thankfulness that Kim Kardashian’s baby will be growing up during an era where many folks feel it is “blatantly cruel” to buy a coat made out of skin.” The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals group is also hopeful that Kanye West and the reality star’s offspring will follow in the footsteps of her aunt Khloe and not her parents.
Khloe Kardashian is married to basketball star Lamar Odom. The Kim’s little sister was one of the celebrities who posed for PETA’s “I’d Rather Go Naked” campaign against fur. Although Khloe is still touted as a good example by the animal rights group, she pulled her support for the campaign after a public incident involving her big sister.
Kim Kardashian was “flour bombed” during a red carpet appearance by an animal rights activist last year, TMZ notes. The reality show star was promoting her new fragrance line at the time of the anti-fur incident.
Kanye West’s baby momma was compared to Cruella de Villa last June. The Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s star was spotted in Paris wearing Christian Louboutin python boots. The thigh-high snake skin bouts are reportedly banned in California.
